Glass Flake Coatings Market - Overview
Glass flake coatings possess superior properties such as anticorrosion and anti-abrasion. They also offer barrier to high temperature and harsh chemicals. Glass flake coatings are widely used in various applications due to their characteristics of fire retardancy, mechanical reinforcement, dimensional stability, and UV light resistance. These coatings provide protection from physical and chemical corrosion. Therefore, they are extensively employed in marine, infrastructure, and construction industries.
Based on resin type, the global glass flake coatings market has been segmented into epoxy, polyester, and vinyl polyester. Epoxy is a widely used resin type of glass flake coatings. The epoxy segment is likely to dominate the global glass flake coatings market during the forecast period, owing to its attributes of excellent barrier to mechanical and thermal constraints. Epoxy resins are environment-friendly and provide superior resistance from chemical and heat abrasion. Additionally, epoxy-based glass flake coatings are biocompatible. Thus, they are safe for usage in the food & beverages industry.
In terms of substrate, the global glass flake coatings market has been bifurcated into metal and concrete. The metal segment accounted for key share of the market in 2017. It is estimated to be a rapidly growing segment during the forecast period owing to the broad range of applications in various end-use industries. Demand for glass flake coatings in metal based substrates is high in chemical and wastewater treatment plants, and the marine industry.
Based on region, the global glass flake coatings market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia Pacific is estimated to lead the global glass flake coatings market in the next few years. The market in the region is projected to expand rapidly during the forecast period. Growth in various end-use industries such as marine, wastewater treatment, and power generation is primarily driving the demand for glass flake coatings in Asia Pacific. Expansion in the shipbuilding industry is also fueling the demand for glass flake coatings in the region.
